Subject PR#4367: spaces in chunk sizes
Date Wed, 26 May 1999 15:33:45 GMT
PR#4367 complains that the chunk sizes Apache emits occasionally
have whitespace appended.  This does, in fact, seem to violate
section 3.6.1 of draft 06 of HTTP/1.1 -- unless the 'implied *LWS'
rule at the end of section 2.1 applies.  However, the chunk-size
isn't defined as a token, which the implied *LWS rule mentions

The trailing whitespace appears to be getting added at line
502 of src/main/buff.c, and is a correction for a 'short count'
chunk-size estimate.

So.. does 'implied *LWS' apply here, or are we in actual violation?
